Ok so. On a lx200 classic “don’t know if scope makes a difference”. In the optical train should it be .63 focal reducer, focuser then camera? Or how?

Should the focuser sit between the camera and reducer or first off the scope then reducer, camera.

Thanks:)

The distance from the focal reducer to the camera is critical for proper performance.  So you cannot have a focuser (variable distance) between them.  Find out the proper distance from the FR manufacturer, and then use adapters to ensure the correct distance to the sensor.
